"A fascinating read--olive oil is not only delicious--it is good medicine!" --Ann Louise Gittleman, Ph.D. "One of our most important foods. This book deserves to be in everybody's home library." --Elson M. Haas, M.D., author of Staying Healthy with Nutrition, 21st Century Edition Discover Olive Oil's Extraordinary Powers! Revised and updated, this indispensible book reveals why chefs, doctors, and nutritionists all love extra virgin olive oil, a key ingredient in the Mediterranean Diet--and why other healthful oils from vegetables, fruits, and nuts are not far behind. You'll find easy recipes for satisfying foods like Pizza Baguettes with Garlic Oil, Fudgy Coconut Oil Brownies, Honey-Citrus-Olive Oil Fruit Kabobs, and Macadamia Nut Oil Cookies. Also included: home cures that beat colds and reduce pain, beauty and household secrets, and pet care tips that really work! Deliciously healing surprises. . .. The art of using olive oil for mind, body, and spirit goes back 6,000 years. Hippocrates, "the father of medicine," used olive oil in over 60 healing remedies. New research confirms that olive oil can help lower the risk of heart disease, cancer, and type 2 diabetes, and it can stall age-related diseases. Combining olive oil with other oils (like coconut and macadamia nut oils), can help combat fatigue, infections, and insomnia, and help you fight fat and shape up! Bring on the butter--especially the right kind and right amount. When paired with oils, this twentieth-century "forbidden" saturated fat is a new twenty-first-century health food. "Orey gives kudos to olive oil--and people of all ages will benefit from her words of wisdom." --Dr. Will Clower, CEO Mediterranean Wellness

The Truth about Olive Oil Benefits – Curing Methods -- Remedies Forward by Jim Henry President Texas Olive Ranch Executive Director Texas Olive Oil Council The Truth about Olive Oil is NOT a cook book. There are no recipes for cooking in the Mediterranean style. There are no pizza recipes. If anything, you could say this book is about a celebration of the benefits the lowly little olive showers on those who embrace its many flavors and colors by using it – both internally (by eating it) and externally (by rubbing it on their skin and in their hair). Its health giving benefits (anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties) are legendary and can be traced back to its earliest uses well before the time of Christ. In the pages of this book, I hope to stimulate further interest in the use of olives and olive oil by presenting various “how to do it” scenarios that are practical and fun. For instance, making table olives is an easy and fun thing to do that takes very little actual “doing” on your part. Most of the curing time can be spent by your doing other things while the curing medium does the job of making the fruit edible. I provide specific instructions on how to do this. And what about getting olives from your own tree(s) pressed so you can enjoy home-grown olive oil? You might think that only commercial growers can do this. Well, I found two commercial olive oil processors who will accept your smaller loads of olives, combine them with other small loads, do the pressing and the bottling and return the resultant oil to you on a prorated basis. In addition, I tell you about the various grades of olive oil and what they mean to you in terms of their nutritional value. I think you’ll be quite surprised at what you discover. The external uses of olive oil (and some internal uses as well) all involve using this liquid as a form of folk remedy. It’s a skin lotion to soothe rough chapped elbows or lips; it’s a diaper rash cure; it’s a massage oil for easing aches and pains; it’s a lot of things and we’ve only just scratched the surface. There are more inside the book. What you’ll get out of reading this book is a greater appreciation for this elixir that can enhance your life and health in ways you may never even have thought of. Other information about The Truth About Olive Oil Genre – cooking, Mediterranean, low cholesterol Tags -- olive oil nutrition, benefits of olive oil, curing olives, olive oil benefits, does olive oil go bad, olive oil for skin, extra virgin olive oil Reviews -- The Truth About Olive Oil was originally published in August of 2012. Since then it has accrued many wonderful reviews by its Amazon purchasers and currently (Dec. 7, 2013) sports an overall 4 stars from 12 reviews. Here is an excerpt from inside this book (not the same as the “Look Inside This Book” excerpt: . . . Nothing in Nature is “pure”! Ordinarily we automatically think of “pure” as a good thing, so when discussing “pure” in relation to things we put in our mouths and swallow, it may be difficult to turn our thinking 180° and realize that, if we need edibles to be as close to Nature as possible, and we do, we don’t want “pure”. “Pure” = no health benefits – no enzymes – no phytochemicals – no micro-nutrients. In other words, to borrow a concept from my other book (How to Eat Healthy), “pure” = pica, a non-nutritious edible that may change how the cells use food. -- End of Excerpt --
